I’ve got through Movember.
I shaved the mo’ off. Ultimately, it was always going to go after the month was up.
By week three I thought I’d got used to it, but in the final week, the itching seemed to get worse. Maybe I was conscious that it was about to come off.
It’s certainly more hassle having a moustache than not. If you’re clean shaven, you just shave everything each morning; with the moustache you have to keep it trimmed so it doesn’t get out of control, but not accidentally trim it back too much so it looks too much like a Hitler moustache.
In the warm weather, it gets sweaty.
When I sneeze, it gets snotty.
And ultimately, I didn’t really like how it looked.
Others may like having facial hair, but it’s not for me.
So I shaved it off
So it came off. And you know what… afterwards, it was still itchy. Argh.
As of last night, I’d reached $825. There seemed to be a burst of activity on Tuesday, perhaps following a pleading Tweet. Thank you to all who donated — every amount, big or small, is appreciated!
